It uses breathings and accents. The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and according to the Ammonian Sections, (no references to the Eusebian Canons). It contains lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical service).[2]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[1] It has some special readings.

It was not examined by the Claremont Profile Method.

In John 1:28 it reads ἐν Βηθανίᾳ ἐγένετο.


It is dated by the INTF to the 9th century.[4]

The codex 063 was divided and now is located in several different places. 14 leaves at the Vatopedi monastery (1219), 6 leaves at the State Historical Museum (V. 137, 181).
